HOW TO SIGN UP:

       Please email Dick Dodds at the above address and include your cell phone number. I will share this info with the rest of the participants so you can organize car pools from Tarrant County.


When:     

                         Saturday, February 24, 2018, 8:30 a.m.

Where do we meet:     Starbucks, southwest corner of Garland Road and Buckner Boulevard, Dallas

Cost:

                                 Entry fee $15 adults, $12 seniors; Parking $15 if bought at the Arboretum, $9 if bought on-line.  Dick Dodds has a membership where he can get 5 guests in and two cars parked. The Arboretum offers reciprocal access for BRITA and Clark Gardens members.

 

Plan:

We will meet at Starbucks and organize carpools to the Arboretum, 1 mile away. The Arboretum opens at 9:00 a.m. This is the first day of Spring Blooms where there will be over ½ million bulbs blooming - mostly tulips, hyacinth and daffodils. There are beautiful cherry trees and lots of water features. Plenty of opportunities for macro photography. This is one of the best botanic gardens in the South.


At about 11:30, we will leave the Arboretum, return to our cars and make our way to the Dallas Farmers’ Market for lunch. Even during lunch there are opportunities for “people” shots of farmers selling their wares. After lunch, there are wonderful opportunities for more floral photography at the famous Ruibal’s plant shop. There are also great opportunities for pottery and yard art photography at nearby vendors. 

 

Below are some shots from last year’s Spring Blooms.
